Mike Malloy Fired from Air America Radio (post from Sacramento For Democracy)

by Dan Bacher
Here's the terrrible news about the firing of Mike Malloy by Air America Radio, with an urgent action alert posted on the Sacramento For Democracy website. I urge everybody to sign the petition and demand that the management of AAR rehire him.

Air America fired Mike Malloy today. I was concerned when Thom Hartmann mentioned that he might have to fill in for Mike, who was filling in for Randi Rhodes.

This is from Mike's website:
There will be no Mike Malloy program today - or any day - on Air America Radio as we have been terminated. We are told its a financial decision.
We are as shocked as you are, especially since as recently as last Tuesday we were told we had the go-ahead to announce our return to NY airwaves and that our contract was "on the way."
We are told its a financial decision.
More details to follow as we hear them ourselves.
If you are like me and think that Mike was one of the few radio hosts that spoke Truth to Power, please sign this petition:

You can also post comments on the Mike Malloy Show message board:
Kathy Bay Malloy (Mike's wife and producer) posted this on Democratic Underground. There are already over 450 comments:

Here's the contact info for Air America if you want to give them a piece of your mind:

This is what Sam Seder had to say about it today:
Speaking of insanity, uh, (long pause) on mike, Kathy Malloy has announced that Mike malloy hase been fired from AAR.
That's what I've heard. Mike was not on filling in for Randi today, he was scheduled to, he was sceduled to fill in for Randi tomorrow, and frankly I'm pissed off about it. I have made it clear to anybody here that would listen to me that I'm pissed off about it. I think it's a huge mistake. I don't know if it's definitive, because AAR to my knowledge has not made any official announcement. My hope is that it's not.
My understanding is that alot of people have been calling here, and emailing here, and I've noticed that people have phone numbers and emails posted in the comment section of our blog at As I was trolling the web I noticed it at the Democratic underground and I noticed it stuff at Mike Certainly I have other avenues to express my frustration at this thing, but I imagine those who don't will probably go to those addresses. I think it's stupid. A bunch of horse crap....
